Living Labs 1.0

The Circular Bioeconomy Alliance is building a global network of Living Labs for Nature, People and Planet.

These Living Labs are part of the EFI-led initiative which ran from 2020 to September 2023. The CBA charity is currently scoping new Living Labs for 2024.

Our Living Labs demonstrate how harmony can be achieved by empowering nature and people in a concrete territorial context, integrating traditional knowledge, capitalizing on new research and innovation and based on public-private partnerships that place local communities at their centre. Each Living Lab uses a landscape restoration project as the starting point to catalyse the development of circular bioeconomy value chains while restoring biodiversity and local livelihoods. They are the start of a journey towards more resilient communities and landscapes.
